Pure Luck adds brunch, patio

The number of brunch options in the area is increasing almost as fast as the price of gas. If a tofu scramble with a stiff ale is your thing, Pure Luck on Heliotrope is adding brunch on weekends and building out the tiny outdoor area on the side of the restaurant into an outdoor eating (and beer-drinking!) area that should be ready by next week. We stopped by so I could introduce Kathy to the joys of jackfruit carnitas tacos, and ran into Paloma from The Sharp Ease working there, whom I've known since she was a baby in a basket under the table at El Coyote. We ended up with a delicious order of plantains too and tasted the Telegraph ale, Craftsman Orange Grove, Craftsman lager, and staggered out after sharing a pint of Arrogant Bastard.
Pure Luck, 707 Heliotrope at Melrose.
Other new brunches of note are at Canele, Malo, Lot 1 and Little Dom's.

It's great to see more places pouring Craftsman beers! Thanks!

That beer makes me moan with unfulfilled pleasure. I'd like to make a cross-country trip from the wonderful Long Trail Brewery in Bridgewater Corners, Vermont, out to the LA to drink that brew.

Of course, there'd be some sampling at other craft breweries along the way, I'd expect.

Great blog, Pat!

Have you heard about the Armenian Food Fair & Festival going on Saturday, May 31st in Montebello
(San Gabriel Valley). They make the best pirashki and sarma -rolled grapeleaves! You don't want to miss it. It's only once a year.
